Dataset contains digital versions of physical core logs housed in Missouri Geological Survey archives. The logs are variable in detail, ranging from simple locations and formation tops to extensive stratigraphic descriptions and chemistry. A portion were done by MGS staff; others were donated by industry, academia, and government entities. The dataset includes logs for mines or undeveloped deposits with occurrences of or potential for critical minerals, along with logs in areas with permissive geology. The dataset comprises three tables: header and location information; formation/stratigraphic top, bottom and written description; and geochemical and assay data.

Project Summary Missouri has produced or has permissive geology for multiple critical elements, including REEs, Co, barite, Ga, Ge, In, Mn, Ti, Re, Bi, Sn, and W. The former Pea Ridge mine is a principal U.S. REE deposit (Long et al., 2010), while southeast Missouri formerly produced Co. The state is also home to the world-class Washington County Barite District, and had barite production from the Central Missouri Barite-Lead District. Minor production of tungsten occurred in small deposits in southeast Missouri, and Ga and Ge had minor production in the Tri-State Zn-Pb District. The Southeast Missouri Lead District produced Co from the Mine La Motte-Fredericktown subdistrict, and has know cobalt in currently operation...
This collection lists and describes scanned Missouri Geological Survey (MGS) field notebooks that have been inventoried for data. The field notebook collection is a one-of-a-kind collection, dating back to the 1800s, that contains unique geologic information not recorded elsewhere. Due to the historic nature of the collection, the data it contains would be impossible to replicate today. These data are invaluable to present day geologic research, field and mine-related projects as well as engineering and construction projects. The notebooks not only contain irreplaceable physical geologic information, but also document the evolving geologic interpretations and nomenclature during a dynamic time in the science of...

Dataset contains sample-level metadata on unpublished field maps contained in Missouri Geological Survey archives. Maps were used for a wide range of projects; therefore type and quantity of data on each map varies considerably. Maps contain spatial data (locations of mines, springs, wells, outcrops, sinkholes, and other features), as well as field notes, measured and cross sections, detail sketches, material properties, and other geologic data. Maps are primarily 7.5-minute and 15-minute quadrangles; some with other scales are included. Display coordinates are the lower left hand corner of the map. Maps are available through the Material Request instructions noted below.
The Missouri Geological Survey (MGS) manuscript collection is a one-of-a-kind collection, dating back to the 1800s, that contains unique geologic information not recorded elsewhere. Due to the historic nature of the collection the data it contains would be impossible to replicate today. These data are invaluable to present day geologic research, field and mine-related projects as well as engineering and construction projects. The manuscripts not only contain irreplaceable physical geologic information, but document the evolving geologic interpretations and nomenclature during a dynamic time in the science of geology. The Missouri Geological Survey Unpublished Manuscript Collection is a listing of manuscripts...

The collection consists of well cutting samples (both whole rock & cuttings) for Public Water Supply wells, private domestic wells, irrigation wells and mineral/oil & gas exploration test holes. In most cases rock cuttings have been collected on 5-foot intervals from ground surface to the total depth of the well. The cuttings are permanently stored in glass or plastic vials in core boxes at the McCracken Core Library. Roughly ninety percent of the collection has a strip log made of the well. Most strip logs contain the owner's name, well location (county,section,township,range), latitude/longitude (when know), driller's name, drill date, amount & size of casing, ground elevation at well site, total depth, formation...
The attached file comprises location and formation information for the Missouri Geological Survey’s conodont sample Collection. The collection is primarily for support of STATEMAP mapping activities in Missouri; however, several conodont samples for other projects are included. As data archiving is evolving for this project, information completeness is variable from one column to the next. Data for the most recently completed STATEMAP grant year will be added as the sample compilation is completed. The physical conodont samples are stored in a conodont archive maintained in the MGS library and available for viewing upon request.

This is plate 1 of a draft version of bedrock mapping of the Mesoproterozoic conducted in Iron and St. Francois Counties, Missouri by the Missouri Geological Survey from 2017-2019. Final publication has yet to be assigned.
The Missouri Geological Survey's McCracken Core Library and Research Center contains more than 3,300 drill cores, comprising 1.4 million feet of core. The majority of cores in the repository were donated, with the remainder drilled by MGS. Cores were drilled for metallic and industrial minerals, mineral fuels, and stratigraphic and environmental studies. Repository materials are available for study; information on making an appointment and on MGS repository policy and procedures is available at https://dnr.mo.gov/geology/geosrv/geores/mccracken.htm. This dataset includes only those cores for which coordinates are available to the section level. A complete listing of holdings is available at the above website.
The Missouri Geological Survey (MGS) field notebook collection is a one-of-a-kind collection, dating back to the 1800s, that contains unique geologic information not recorded elsewhere. This collection contains a listing of all physical MGS field notebooks. The listing contains the notebook number, author(s) and date(s). The physical notebooks are archived in a climate-controlled, fire-proof vault with limited access. Scanned notebooks, which are available through MGS as pdf's, are listed in the "Index of Scanned Missouri Geological Field Notebooks" collection. Any notebook of interest that is listed in here in the "List of Missouri Geological Field Notebooks" collection, but is not currently scanned and indexed...
